Snub Pollard
11 March 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Although Snub Pollard never achieved singular fame as opposed to being a supporting artiste, it was good seeing him get the opportunity to be a leading player in a film. Personally, I felt that his best work was supporting Harold Lloyd, but I guess it is sad when you're an actor that will only ever be second fiddle to the first violinist.
